Our South Florida Injury Lawyers at Whittel & Melton urge you to think twice before getting wrapped up in the #InMyFeelings Challenge aka the KeKe Challenge.
The “In My Feelings” challenge started earlier this month when well-known rapper Drake came out with a new song.
A dance was created and turned into a dangerous act where drivers jump out of moving cars to participate.
For one man, the challenge went wrong.
A Boynton Beach man was a struck by a car while filming a video for the so-called “In My Feelings” challenge.
The 22-year-old was supposed to hop on the hood of a friend’s car while recording a web video, but he slipped and was struck by the car.
Fortunately the man only suffered minor scrapes.
Our South Florida Auto Accident Injury Attorneys at Whittel & Melton want to warn you against participating in this dangerous and illegal activity. In fact, if you are caught, Florida drivers can accumulate about $1,000 worth of citations for their participation in the KeKe challenge:
